BACK

TO A DANCER
by Selia Qynn

You were always a free spirit,
Took from life what it would bring.
Everybody's Valentine,
How we used to love to sing
That suicide is painless,
And of sea gulls in the dawn,
And Mary Beth, I love you.
Ahh, the memories go on.

What happened there in New Orleans?
You never said a thing.
Just went to sleep one night
And slipped away inside a dream.

It's so hard to release you.
I'm so rooted in the earth.
Although I know it's true,
That in dying comes rebirth.
In my head I know your gone,
And whatever is, is right.
Still, I wait to know it in my heart,
'Cause I feel you here tonight.

The Wandering Boy Wonder,
Always there in time for fun;
And now you're off to worlds beyond.
How could you die so young?
Well, you still live in my dreams,
Behind the veil, a shiney light;
In freedom flying high above,
A dancer in the light.

What happened there in New Orleans?
You never said a thing.
Just went to sleep one night
And slipped away inside a dream.

What happened there in New Orleans?
You never said goodbye.
Farewell my brother, think of me
And sing to me sometimes.
